I lived 13 years in the Balkans (Kosovo, Albanian and Macedonia) and had a few adventures. Now I'm enjoying rediscovering my roots in NOLA and surrendering to the seduction of the world's sexiest city.
I like joy-riding the Algiers Ferry; checking out pop-up restaurants; taking pictures of insects, snakes, sunsets and swamps; hiking; biking; listening to live music; and hanging out with my kids. (My daughter is a freshman in college, my son a freshman in high school. They don't live with me, but we do spend a good bit of time together.)
I'm a total sucker for a compliment.
I have terminal ADD.
In the interest of full disclosure, you should probably know that I'm the worst dancer in the world. I grew up fundamentalist, and it was a sin to dance. But that was a convenient cover for me because I was too socially awkward and physically uncoordinated to want to dance anyhow. If 48 isn't too late, I'm ready to learn if somebody brave and patient wants to try to teach me.
